The 2nd anime season of Fullmetal Alchemist is to start this April, and it was the main feature of Aniplex's booth of Tokyo International Anime Fair 2009.
The booth itself was an impressive structure with gigantic "Gate", and the display offered variety of illustrations, story panels and a life-sized model of Alphonse Elric. Plus, a gorgeous brochure that comes with four posters were distributed. It sure would be a fruitful exhibit for fans.
Read on for details and pics.

"Yokubo no Yami (Darkness of Desire)"
"Gun no Sadame (Fate of the Military)"
"Kyodai no Kizuna (Bond between Brothers)"
